This could be the most interesting article you read today. Scary and fascinating at the same time.
Reminds me of Alzheimer's patients. One moment lucid, the next frightened and confused and not recognizing their most intimate loved ones. And the worst part is that the episodes only get progressively more frequent over time. I totally agree with the article's author, familiarity is key to grounding the patient back to their reality. You have to be prepared with a protocol that they can latch onto in their moments of desperation. Having external records of life experiences can help in that regard.
